I am beginning to understand how people become addicted to soap operas. There is nothing new or smart or beautiful in this impeachment trial, and more often than not I just want to yell at everyone on the screen to show some common sense
(or, if Miriam, just to shut up), but I can't tear my eyes away. I would like to say that it's just to see Enrile and Fariñas own everyone else and make side comments to each other in Ilokano, but it can't even be explained away by that. I want to see a conviction, and that's it.
I just have to say: watching the senators pitch in their votes of convict/acquit is kind of like watching a penalty shootout. A very slow
penalty shootout. It's at 10-2 to convict now. Livestream is here
, if anyone's looking. Speech of the day so far goes to- I can't believe I'm saying this- Lito Lapid.
ETA: 15-3 and it's Bong Revilla and it's 16 to convict.
ETA 2: !!!!!
